There are many words that could describe Jennifer & Chase’s wedding held at Fisherman’s Inn in Elburn, IL: gorgeous, stunning, relaxing and fun just to name a few. The couple really knows how to throw a party for their guest. The choosing of the historic Fisherman’s Inn with rustic elegance and natural surroundings was a fantastic choice.
The couple chose to do a first look with a special private intimate moment on a tinny island at the venue a fews hours before the ceremony. Chase waited at the end of a arched bridge on a tinny flower filled island looking way until Jennifer gave him the OK to turn around to see his bride for the first time. I captured the private moment from a respectful distance giving the couple their privacy while being able to capture that moment for them them to enjoy years later.
